CORNWOOD and Plymouth made no real progress away from the Premier Division basement on a soggy Saturday in the Tolchards Devon League.
Cornwood’s game against Heathcoat was abandoned before halfway – and Plymouth didn’t get to bat or bowl at North Devon due to bad weather.
With Bovey Tracey losing at Exeter in one of only two games to go the distance, Sidmouth’s win at Brixham to confirm them as champions was the other, it is virtually as you were down at the bottom.
Brixham’s fate is already settled, but anyone of Cornwood (165pts), Plymouth (171), Bovey Tracey (172) or even Torquay (182) could go with them.
Bovey have Exmouth (4th) and Heathcoat (3rd) to finish and will be watching results involving Cornwood and Plymouth closely.
Cornwood finish with North Devon (A) and Torquay (H). Plymouth must play Heathcoat (H) and Brixham (A) on the last day.
Plymouth captain Sam Stein said: “I don't think anything has changed, all the points are roughly still the same.
“It just depends on other teams run-ins, we are confident of staying up.”
Cornwood captain Elliot Staddon was a little more cautious in his comments.
“We are still in the fight and looking forward to the next couple of weeks,” said Staddon.
“We can only focus on our remaining two games and do our absolute best to win both.”
Cornwood were 137 for seven when rain stopped play for the last time after 31 overs.
Opener Matt Butterworth scored 36 and Jason Hall made 38.
Best stand of the innings was one of 50 for the fifth wicket between Hall and skipper Staddon (17)
Jamie Drew had the prize wicket of Cornwood pro Jackson Thompson for one on his way to figures of two for 20,
Thompson, who made 677 runs in Cornwood’s promotion season last summer, is on 425 for the current campaign, his third at Oak Park since switching from Bradninch.
Dinesh Raheja had two for 31.
